See here for a complete list of France related articles that need attention. Please respond to these requests if you're able.

Featured article star.svg Featured Content

These Featured articles have been identified as among the best articles produced by the Wikipedia community. They have not necessarily been improved to Featured Status by this WikiProject. These articles may be chosen as "Article of the month" or "Personality of the month" on the France portal.

The Featured images are chosen by the Wikipedia community because they are beautiful, shocking, impressive, and/or informative. France-related featured pictures can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject France/Gallery. Note: This list includes images from Commons.

A Featured topic is a collection of inter-related articles that are of a good quality (though are not necessarily featured articles). A featured topic represents Wikipedia’s best work by thoroughly covering all parts of that topic through several high-quality articles that share a similar structure and are well-linked with each other.
